Krystle W. Glasgow, MIS, CNMT, NMTCB(CT), NMAA, FSNMMI-TS, clinical coordinator in the UAB M.S. in Nuclear Medicine Technology program, has been elected as the 2021-2022 president-elect of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Technologist Section (SNMMI-TS). This is a three-year commitment as president-elect, president, and past-president of this national society.

Glasgow will be introduced during the SNMMI 2021 Virtual Annual Meeting, June 11–15. This is the culmination of a long career of serving her industry. She has held top leadership positions at the local level for the Alabama Society of Nuclear Medicine as well as numerous board and committee positions at the regional and national level for the SNMMI.

“As president of the SNMMI-TS, I will be an advocacy champion for all NMTs – optimizing grassroots activity, educating regulators and legislators, and making sure nothing inhibits the practice of Nuclear Medicine,” said Glasgow. “I will also work hard on the personal level – making sure the voices of our NMTs are heard and that they have the tools and training they need to be successful.”

In 2020, Glasgow became only the third person ever in Alabama to be named a Fellow by the SNMMI-TS. The year prior to that, she was named to the SNMMI inaugural “Ones to Watch” list, which featured 30 rising stars in nuclear medicine and molecular imaging under the age of 35. In 2017,  she earned the Southeastern Chapter of the SNMMI Distinguished Service award. That award is not an annual honor – it is only delivered when the chapter president wishes to recognize someone for stellar service.

"The SNMMI-TS has long been a wonderful resource for both technologists and students in mentoring, networking, continuing education, research and advocacy and we take great pride in Krystle's election," said Amy Brady, MAEd, CNMT, interim NMT program director. "I have known Krystle for years and I know her exceptional skills as a leader, educator, advocate and communicator will serve the organization and our fellow technologists and students well."

In 2019, she was a member of the UAB research team that earned the American Society for Clinical Laboratory Science Education and Research Fund Joseph J. Kleiner Award for Best Paper. In addition, she is a contributing author of three books and co-author of “The Review of Nuclear Medicine Technology, 5th edition.”

Glasgow becomes the second UAB NMT member to earn this Technologist Section elected honor. Norman E. Bolus, MSPH, MPH, CNMT, FSNMMI-TS, who served as director of the program from 2008 until his retirement in 2021, was elected in 2017 and served as the 2018-2019 SNMMI-TS president.

The SNMMI is an international scientific and medical organization with more than 16,000 members. They are dedicated to advancing nuclear medicine and molecular imaging, vital elements of precision medicine that allow diagnosis and treatment to be tailored to individual patients in order to achieve the best possible outcomes.
